Katanga, Democratic republic of Congo (Zaire)

The Katanga, or Shaba, copperbelt in the DR of Congo is a belt about 70 kilometres wide and 250 kilometres long between Lubumbashi and Kolwezi, close to Zambia. There are more than 70 economic mineral deposits of copper/cobalt and Uranium and four large mining centers. The DRC copper belt includes some of the highest grade copper deposits in the world. The ore also has high grades of cobalt and may hold 34% of the world's cobalt reserves. There are large deposits that have yet to be explored using modern technology, so the size of the reserves may be understated. Uranium minerals are the most aesthetic specimens in the world.

Sorry, but we don't have any specimen available from this locality/place.
